PMID:  20888004     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
We report a patient with numerous abnormal electrocardiograms (ECGs) in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Our patient both simulated and stimulated her arrhythmias with an ECG rhythm generator and intentional caffeine intoxication. To our knowledge, this is the first report of caffeine overdose for arrhythmogenesis.
